Blast from the Past - 5

Here's the fifth one. I think this one and the next one (hows this for foreshadowing?) are kind of on similar themes, but I'm not sure. I mean, I wrote them with a different idea in mind. But I don't know...

The Reflected Self

The mirror shows
A stark reflection.
Lives lost in reality;
Total submission.

Looking back again,
It's more apparent.
This is who you are,
Desolate and decadent.

What lies beyond
Evades the vision.
This glass is tainted;
Dark hue of poison.

Who is this?
It says to you.
Are you what you think,
Or feel, or say, or do?

Hello there sir.
I am in your debt.
Your image is mine own,
The most honest citizen yet.

But sight is taken
In the darkest hour.
And you, my dear sir,
Escape the world's scar.
